Student potential is community potential, and as faculty at Santa Fe Community College, we care deeply about maintaining quality student learning conditions.

‘Chamber Supports February 6 Bond and Mill Levy’

The Board paid particular attention to the 17,000 sq. ft. Automotive Center on the main SFCC campus which will have classrooms and a customized training center to prepare students for high-demand careers in the automotive industry and double the number of students educated annually. Local automotive dealers have consistently advocated increased local training facilities for future employees.

“The bond is needed because we don’t have any space,” says auto student Jason Anaya, taking a break from a Monday afternoon class at the HEC. A number of larger tools necessary for instruction, such as several car lifts and large toolboxes to store specialized electronics, just don’t fit in the shop.

I urge all Santa Feans to vote on the upcoming SFCC bond issue to support and sustain the college that means so much to current and future students, as well as Santa Fe residents who seek to grow and enrich their lives while living in our special city.

Santa Fe New Mexican Endorsement, ‘My View’
‘Hey, an election is happening!’

This is an important election. The community college is a place where recent high school graduates can save educational dollars while attempting to figure out their career and life paths. It also is place where adults can start over, whether high school dropouts who finally decide to become serious about education or midcareer folks who want a new job and must add to their skills. The automotive center would prepare students for in-demand jobs — and, we trust, keep Santa Fe young men and women at home, working in local auto shops where trained workers are needed…The New Mexican recommends voting for the operational tax levy and for the $17 million in bonds at Santa Fe Community college.

‘Vote for education bonds in Feb. 6 election’

This time, go to the polls and support the bond issues. The improvements they would finance are worthy uses of tax dollars and serve as pretty basic support for local education. The new or improved facilities at the community college should advance economic development as well as provide better career choices for area students.

The community college’s leaders balanced its two proposals to avoid a tax increase. That’s good.

These are the kinds of proposals Santa Feans can get back into the habit of supporting.
